Aldo, his identical twin, takes after their mother in the drama department. Although the brothers may look alike, their personalities differ. While Aldo is always looking for the next date or the next adrenaline rush, Marco can’t seem to pry himself away from his work. Regardless of their differences, the brothers remain very tight. They spend all their free time together. Both are adamant that they will not be marrying and having babies anytime soon, if at all, much to their mother’s chagrin.
Adaline Tidwell fell in love with the city of Florence when she arrived nearly five years ago, and despite her dream of travelling the world, Florence felt like home – and it remains her home for now. She loves the countryside, the architecture, and the passion of the locals. Although she misses her beloved brother Kyle back in Portland, Oregon, she is following her heart. Since her arrival, though, she has always lived paycheck to paycheck, and as such has always been at risk of running out of money and having to give up her dream and return home. Though Kyle would do anything to support her dream, she is too independent to become a burden to him. So when Addy loses her job suddenly, she finds herself in a bind. With rent due and no time for job hunting, she has three choices: ask Kyle for a loan, return home and give up her dream, or take the job her roommate offers her. Her roommate Elena dances at an exclusive strip club. Addy refuses to strip, but finally concedes and agrees to wait tables at the club to score quick cash. She has difficulty getting through her first shift, though, when she discovers just how handsy the customers are.
When Marco scores a big deal, he offers his to celebrate by showing his new partners a good time in Florence. Although not his cup of tea, he agrees to take the group of Chinese businessmen to a strip club at the end of an evening of wining and dining, taking a seat himself in a quiet corner away from the activity. He is startled by an angry waitress that appears next to him at the bar, but is struck first by her beauty, and then by her intelligence, when they engage in a brief conversation. Going on gut instinct, he offers her a job once her learns of her predicament.
Neither Marco nor Addy is looking for anything serious when they give into their attraction. Neither wants marriage and children. But as they continue to enjoy one another, it doesn’t matter how they define what they mean to one another. It becomes a relationship of sorts. But Marco knows that whatever he and Addy have won’t pass his mother’s scrutiny for one very simple reason: Addy isn’t Italian. And that knowledge means that the relationship will never result in marriage. Yet love finds him and Addy even though they aren’t ready for it and have a hard time recognizing it. The couple eventually earns a beautiful HEA.
Marco and Addy’s story is about family and following your dreams, and the culture and beauty of Florence enrich their story. It is nicely written. The plot is somewhat complex. The characters are nicely developed. It is written in first person. The POV alternates between Marco and Addy. I rate this book four stars.
I received a free advance copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Addy and Marco meet in a unique way and their relationship is a pleasure to learn about. These two have sizzling hot chemistry, smart banter, and a sense of humor like every good relationship needs. There are a couple of big obstacles that must be dealt with on the way to the well-earned HEA. This book has some wonderful secondary characters. (I’m wondering what Aldo and Elena would be like together!) The author’s style is so easy to read, it’s like enjoying hazelnut Gelato on a warm summer day … Delicious, decadent, and just so good you can’t resist.
Marco intrigued me from the very start and the fact the story is set in Italy, is an added bonus due to my love of travel and desire to go there!!
Enter Addy, what a wonderful character she is! She is sassy, tells it like it is and doesn’t shy away from hard work! She is trying to live her best life in a beautiful country!
What I really loved about this book was the way Marco and Addy got to know each other! The sizzling tension between them could be felt and the banter was fantastic! I really didn’t want the story to end!!
This was a wonderful love story where the Billionaire meets his match! How will he overcome certain family members or are they destined to failure!
A truly amazing read!
